Losing Faith In Politics?
Just wondering if anyone else is not too excited about politics anymore?
I used to be a hard core political type. But after the last election, I thought to myself "Is the best they have to offer us"?
I mean I vote pro gun exclusively among a few other views I am a huge proponent for. But I just feel we are losing out with both sides of the political fence.
I sure hope we get some better folks to run for state, and federal government in '08

I lost faith years ago when part of my job was helping protect them. I found they all lie and twist the truth. These days it seems that instead of voting FOR someone, you are voting AGAINST someone.
I often wish I could find someplace to go where there was a honest working political system....... But so far ours is still best to spite the faults.

Yep - there is some feeling of disillusionment and with that a sense of choosing between two devils - which has the shorter tail
Much could be worse but much could be better too. I have become very cynical with Gov's over time - much as anything because altruism seems very lacking - more, there is the impression that power is the target for individuals - sometimes sought by far from honorable means.
I dearly wish for honesty but sadly that so often seems lost amongst deceptions, misinformations, disinformations - the feeling of trust is sometimes near non-existent.
Add to this re trust - there is far too much perceived lack of trust given out by Gov toward ''the people'' - and that by default tends to reduce the trust in return. There is an uneasy cohabitation these days between ''us'' and ''them'' - well at least for non-sheep!
What we need are statesmen - not politicians. People who have genuine best interests at heart - and who want not self agrandizement but have a genuine wish to further the cause for fairness and balance. Pie in sky - I know!
Whatever happened to ''government by the people, for the people''.
These days - somethings goes belly up - cover it up!!! Can't have embarrassment ya know!
